The artwork was good; it fit the dialogue and plotline very well. C.E.L. Welsh did some serious research, and presented a very nice picture of Houdini and made me understand a figure that has been made to be larger than life, an icon. I can now understand and appreciate his accomplishments more. Houdini is a true success story, which I didn’t know. Campfire truly fulfilled their mission statement. I am passing this among my family; you can share this graphic with all ages safely; that I really appreciate. One other thing they had near the back cover is “Putting the fun back into reading”. They certainly have done that and much more. Next week I am going to post on their version of Moby Dick, I am really looking forward to it after buzzing through this. What are you reading today?

    For such a famous figure in history and for someone who finds performance artists, especially magicians, fascinating I really do not know that much about Harry Houdini. That is until I read this graphic novel and now I know a bit more. Click me for the rest of the review, it comes with pictures.

    ""My performance is more important than my life." Houdini was definitely a name a lot would recognize but I never knew how great he really was. This was a wonderful read. The illustrations were good and the arrangement was in such a way where it would be easy for anyone to understand. It was a very nice quick read.
